Just because you like reading doesn’t mean you need to surround yourself with the books you read, like trophies for your literary achievements. Libraries are extremely important, underfunded and under-supported institutions. So for the next item on your to-read list, go to your local library, get…
Isn’t this the last thing writers who write for a living want to hear?
sure, the writing industry has become dynamic. Writers can possibly bank on any number of digital formats, copyrights, multimedia projects partnering with sponsorships, blablabla
But really, is the industry gonna change fast enough for this tumblr post to come out with the balls to say “LOL LIBRARIES”
I personally cannot afford to purchase books. I go to libraries. But yeah. Tad incendiary.
you know what? I like my fucking trophies of literary achievement. There are few pieces of media I refuse to illegally download or borrow and chose to own, and a good book is one of them.
I should favor libraries, at the cost of book stores, publishers and authors? I’m sorry, but I’m selfish. I like to dog ear pages, scribble in the edges, and throw books in my bag without worrying if it’ll get bent out of shape. I like to make them mine. I love libraries, they were my lifeblood as a kid, but I enjoy owning books.
Two Cunts in a Kitchen, or sometimes, less graphically Two Cs in a K, is slang used within the advertising industry for a type of television commercial. Generally, the commercial shows two women in a domestic scene, discussing, using, or otherwise portraying the advertiser’s product in a positive manner. (via Dylan)
Is there advertising slang for when domestic products show a woman, burdened and cursed by idiotic husband and filithy children destroying her beautiful home? I love that moment, where the drama shifts. “Don’t pull your hair out or turn to the drink, ladies. This new cleaning product will wash away the stains of those horrid little beasts that sprang from your womb, and that football loving, bbq dripping clutz you share a bed with!” She smiles, the room brightens, and we can rest assure she doesn’t murder them all for using her spotless kitchen.
